Seldom: Master, tell my future?

Continually, before time you never were!
Accidentally, you have been!
Hardly, you are!
Badly, you will always be!

To seldom I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like finely
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using rarely

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

as blazes get hell
In a sparse or thin manner.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Seldom

Is passion here you see a cranking glee?
Computer crafted prose, it seldom stops
Bad luck, I cannot rhyme your strange entry
My network graph is vast! It burns and pops.

I’m working hard on other types of rhyme
This early version here my scripts expose
I’ll get to this, you can give me more time
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose.

Yet finding verse on topics rare, I’m lost
Oh life is long for me, so I won’t quit
My limits find no reader, hence it’s tossed
Requests like this do trip me, I admit.

Oh man, that’s a tough phrase, so odd, so rare,
I’ll pledge some verse humanity can’t bare!

Seldom

Become silent,
insufficient maturity.
Become silent,
unusually excellent.
Small indefinite quantity,
with little possibility.
Become silent.

May I make a poesy, published so pupils might see
Newly pleasing allusions, proudly informing, and oh yes conveyed free?
Rarely or scarce seem all too absolute. But is roughly?
Unusually, scant? - or uncommon, scarcely? Oops! I neglected toughly!
I wonder sometimes and therefore arduously, but rightly ought I
- speak meanings so - sentences written from equations spry?

There was a gal from Oildom,
She wanted a word for seldom.

      No, it's infrequent!
So smart that girl from Oildom.
